Been thinking about my ride. And the tour i plan to do for my sixtieth birthday. I think i will get that mountain tour dialed in, and use it. It has the necessary bosses for the racks, offers the abili to put on some drop bars, and should be light enough to not be a drag. The steel steed will feel better on a long day. But how far will i be going on one day? That's the big question. Maybe before i decide on the bike, i should get my route planned out. And get my passport ordered, just in case i venture over the border to canada. Yup. Yup. Tht will be the next thing i do. Before more equipment. Where am i going to go to.
